Curved Conveyor Belts – What Do You Know

What is curved conveyor belt?

A curve conveyor belt, also known as a curved conveyor or curved belt conveyor, is a type of conveyor system designed to handle the transportation of products around curves and corners. These conveyors are used in various industries to move goods through a production or distribution facility where linear conveyors cannot efficiently accommodate changes in direction.

Curved conveyor belt

There are two ways to curve conveyor belt of the turning machine:
1.Mandatory Change of Direction Turning: This method is characterized by not changing the main components of the original machine, but only by adding a corner at the turning point to achieve the turn. It is more suitable for large turns.
2.Natural Change of Direction Turning: This method is characterized by making the conveyor belt into an arc shape, allowing it to bend naturally. It has a simple structure and is easy to maintain, making it more suitable for small turns.

The common turning angles of the general turning conveyor belt are 30 degrees, 45 degrees, 90 degrees, and 180 degrees. Different-angle turning conveyor belts can also be customized according to requirements.

Our commonly used curved conveyor belt materials are generally divided into PVC and PU, which are widely used in the food, beverage, electronics, cosmetics, and other industries.

Role of curved Conveyor Belt

The curved conveyor belt is very convenient. It can be used for horizontal and inclined transportation, and its direction is flexible. Therefore, it is widely used in industrial enterprises. For example, it can transport beverage bottles, medicines, aluminum cans, cosmetics, food, etc. It can also be used in elevators, vegetable washing machines, and meat food transportation. The tensile force borne by the curved conveyor belt generally does not exceed 20 meters in length.

As various types of mechanical conveying equipment continue to emerge, the role of conveyor belts in industrial enterprises is becoming increasingly significant. With the development of technology, conveyor belts are also constantly innovating. In the future, turning conveyor belts will be more adaptable to various complex production and transportation environments, run more smoothly and efficiently, meet various production needs, and play an increasingly important role as a bridge and link in industry, agriculture, and other sectors.
